Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Maybe later I’ll write a lessons learned – but for now, back to work!

I test tomorrow!

I’m not as ready as I’d like, but I am doing OK. I should pass. Going to take one last practice exam and then it’s time for a good night’s sleep.

JUNE 25th is Test Day

I should be studying more…

Major Milestone

Put in my application last Thursday. Should find out early next week if I’m accepted.

Been studying, but now I am STUDYING.

An "Accidental" PM

As a good friend recently pointed out, I’ve been PMing projects throughout my whole career – so why not actually find out what it is that I do and get certified in it. Reading the PMBOK has been quite entertaining – I am already using many of the recommended “best practices” – and now I’m gaining the vocabulary so that I can understand them better and even talk about them!
